New Business


It was previously agreed that the profits from the ACRL/LA Pre-conference workshop should be used for a librarians development fund.The chapter is looking at targeting the subject of information literacy since the Board of Regents is requiring colleges and universities to ensure that students are knowledgeable in obtaining information.Laverne is looking into the ACRL immersion program to see if the chapter could use that format.


Ed Rock recognized the presenters of the ALA pre-conference workshop, Bill Nelson and Bob Fernekes.Because they did the workshop non-gratis, the chapter was able to earn money for the development fund.
